I am pleased as Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster to serve as one of your Geeks OUT Contributing Editors. You can hold me wholly responsible for A Bloody Mouthful, Geeks OUT's very own The Walking Dead recap that analyzes the series through a queer/feminist/Chicana prism. Covering all kinds of geektastic events, from Bent-Con to geeky musicals, also falls within my wheelhouse. As if all that wasn't enough, you also get the benefit of my geek-centric legal acumen and my vociferous criticism of burning issues in the nerdverse.
I also write, create, and horde zines - my babies include Doc Review Band bRaINsTOrM, The Masochistic Mixologist's Recipe Book, and The Arc of an Anatomical Heart. I'm also a member of a zine collective, Zineworks, which spreads the gospel of zines by tabling at zine and community events, putting on workshops for the young, old and everyone in between, and teaching about the history of zines.
I'm a recovering lawyer, currently in library school. I'm also chomping at the bit to get my next tattoo - the frontrunner being one that incorporates Man Ray's Le Violon d'Ingres and two wonderfully descriptive phrases from Neil Gaiman's American Gods (one of my all-time favorite novels).
